It has been said before but why are there so many pilots that are so quick to want to switch from company to company. I know I know AC dreams but no one is guaranteed the call, why not enjoy what you are doing for the moment. I can see if your company is so terrible to want to move to another before...

Doc, how does the pilot lose money unless he isn't willing to stick around for two years. I have seen many pilots get ppc'ed then **ck off a few months later when something "better" comes up-how could companies continue at that rate. I can definitely see an employers point of view. I don't agree wit...

Working for the airlines...

Just wondering if they are any airline pilots out there that are willing to comment on their experience. I mean, has it been all you thought it would be. I just want to know the pros and cons. Is the eventually salary worth all the time away from home, etc...? I just don't know which way to go caree...

Try this link as well for calculating distances and ETE's. I find it has a lot more of the less recognized airports. In fact, by emailing the webmaster, he will usually add airports that are not in the database.

I did the 5 solo t/o and ldg...I don't think it would have felt as good if the instructor was beside me. I did my rating 3 years or so ago at Gander Flight Training-not sure if they still offer it truly solo but if so, I would definitely recommend it! BTW for whoever was inquiring about the "bush co...

It helps a little to not release their training records although I can't imagine who would. We had someone leave us with a valid PPC and he was asked by his new employer to get his training records from us. If they are getting a person already PPC'ed the least they can do is put in some training tim...

I would be very careful when choosing a school for the supposed "bush course". Our company got a company from Ontario to do some REAL bush flying for us and we were told that the owner himself would be the one flying. He was apparently a real bush pilot with lots of experience and their company offe...
